Over 50 women have been on hunger strike at Yarls Wood Immigration Prison near Bedford since Friday 5th February, demanding their immediate release from indefinite detention.
Serco, the company that runs Yarl's Wood on behalf of the UK Border Agency, has tried to brutally repress the hunger strike, most notably on Monday 8th February when Serco guards locked the hunger strikers in a corridor for 8 hours without access to water or toilet facilities.
London NoBorders calls for the immediate release of the hunger
strikers and an end to immigration prisons and is calling for a demo in solidarity with the hungers strikers on Friday 26th February at 2.30pm outside Serco's offices at 18-22 Hand Court (off High Holborn), London, WC1V 6JF. Please bring banners and instruments.
